“Current Issues in Structuring Private Equity and Venture Capital Transactions” will explore where private equity/venture capital firms and LPs get their money and why this matters to deals; differences between and among different financing layers and transaction structures; and when and why various types of investments are used. “Current Topics Regarding Maryland Law Opinion Letters”  will explore the costs and benefits of certain opinions, different types of opinions as well as when diligence is required, the cost to perform it and how it compares with the value of an opinion.
